Acer Chromebook Spin 713: 2-in-1 Chromebook with 3 video outputs

Review of the Acer Chromebook Spin 713 CP713-2W: 2-in-1 Chromebook with 3:2 touchscreen
The Spin 713 offers a 3:2 touchscreen, very good battery life and support for Power Delivery over USB-C. With an 800-Euro price tag, it is not one of the cheapest Chromebooks on the market.

The Acer Chromebook Spin 713 is a slim, compact convertible with a 13.5-inch 3:2 screen. It is primarily intended for business users. The high price (European pricing: €800/$970) may put off many potential buyers (in the US, the pricing is much better: $529).

The Chromebook features an Intel Core i5-10210U, 8 GB of RAM (soldered-in, non-upgradable) and a 128 GB NVMe SSD (M.2-2280), which is why it can handle all current applications. The SSD can be replaced. The system always feels responsive and applications launch very fast. The convertible never gets hot or loud. There are three video outputs (one HDMI port, two USB-C ports with support for DP over USB-C).

In our Wi-Fi test, in which we simulate loads that are consistent with browsing the web, the Spin 713 lasted more than 10 hours, which is a very good result. The laptop can be charged via both USB-C ports. A USB-C power adapter is included.

The main feature of the convertible is the 13.5-inch 3:2 touchscreen (2256x1504, IPS). In our opinion, the 3:2 aspect ratio is perfect for work, but some people might disagree. The display offers good brightness, great colour reproduction and wide viewing angles. However, it has a few weaknesses: The contrast ratio is too low and the screen surface is too reflective. Moreover, the IPS panel suffers from PWM flickering.

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I am a big fan of technology, which is why I try to keep up with it. Among my other passions are literature and writing, and so it should not be surprising to anyone at all that I have a four-year bachelor's degree in philology. However, my interests are not limited just to the world of technology, or, for that matter, the world of literature. I am also interested in people and the stories they have to tell. And more recently, I took an interest in artificial intelligence.
